Varoufakis Supports Croatia's We Can! Platform in European Election

By 20 May 2019

ZAGREB, May 20, 2019 - Former Greek finance minister and one of the leaders of the Democratic in Europe Movement 2025 (DIEM25), Yanis Varoufakis, called on citizens in Croatia to vote for the political platform Možemo! (We Can!) which runs in the European Parliament election in coalition with the New Left and ORaH parties, We Can! said on Monday.

"Možemo! have adopted this Green New Deal, I think you should read it and I think you should support it. The best way of supporting it in the next few days is by voting for Možemo!," Varoufakis said in a video message.

DIEM25 is running in the European Parliament election with its partners under the motto, "European Spring" in seven countries: Greece, Germany, Denmark, Poland, Spain, France and Portugal. It is led, among others, by Croatian philosopher Srećko Horvat, US linguist and philosopher Noam Chomsky and musician Brian Eno.

We Can! has supported DIEM25's Green New Deal which represents an investment programme for developing a post-fossil economy in Europe, under which 500 billion euro would be annually invested across the EU in renewable energy resources, green industry, construction and infrastructure. Funding would be provided through government bonds that would be guaranteed by the European Central Bank (ECB), We Can! said.
